The people traveled in groups and with the new advancements in communication and technology they could quickly establish communities and generate commerce for growth. Along with citizens slaves also made the movement west which further expanded the “Cotton Kingdom.” Overall the advancements in transportation and communication helped to quickly give rise to the expansion of Western America. The growth of western cities and states such as Chicago and Indiana would not have seen such rapid growth had it not been for inventions such as the Steamboat, Roads, The Erie Canal, Railroads, and the Telegraph. Although expansion was going to immanent had it not been for these advancements the cities would have taken longer to become major players in the young US
As stated in course book, inventing new products or services also creates value (Brickley, Smith, & Zimmerman, 2009, p. 248). The increase in the demand for corn farming will increase the value of the land significantly and one could reap great profit if the knowledge is there. I think my colleagues are providing great advice but there is a great deal of information and knowledge missing in order for this investment to be successful. Entering a new business and investing can be very difficult. I think this may be a great purchase to operate a corn farmland but do not think the knowledge is in place to manufacture a corn-based ethanol.
Meso-american DBQ Meso-american society surprised European explorers as the cities and civilizations they found were flourishing and complex as opposed to the savagery they had expected. A large contributing factor to this relatively advanced culture was the specific role played by Meso-american technology. These many technologies affected all areas of life, from more efficient harvesting and better weaponry to the ability to create a specialized labor force, technology developed and shaped all facets of Meso-american society. Technology had an extreme impact upon agriculture in the Americas. This is evident through their ingenuity of floating gardens, knowledge of plants' uses such as the Maguey plant, the sowing of corn, and written records of agricultural products.
Sugar is a very tempting and delightful sweetener to foods used every day, all over the world to satisfy our appetites. One year after Christopher Columbus’s first voyage in 1493, Columbus introduced cane sugar to the islands of the Caribbean. During this time sugar was not known to most people in Europe. That changed soon enough and caused the production of sugar to become a large industry. The sugar trade was driven by land and climate, consumer demand, and the economy.
The reason why i think the plant growth light allowed the plant to grow much faster and fuller is because of the different types of wavelength of light generated by the light. The wavelengths that the plant growth light are different from the regular light because it produces wavelengths that the plant can use more efficiently. Plants use most of the wavelengths of light but only a certain few types of wavelengths allow the plant to operate at its full potential while doing photosynthesis. As technology improves so does the way we can grow plant more efficiently not only for home aquariums but for the masses of people around the world by growing corn and other foods faster so we can meet the demands from
Although the Incas were more advanced and modern in their ways, the Inca and Aztec Empires were similar in some of the aspects that allowed them to be so successful and powerful. First, both civilizations had intensive agriculture mandated by the state. The crops were then redistributed to all the social classes equally. Both economies depended greatly on agriculture and farming, even producing some of the same crops such as corn and squash. Although agriculture based societies have been around for a long time in history and were pretty much the norm in this time period, their agriculture systems still created a surplus of crops, which allowed for increased populations.
This couldn’t be further from what slave labor consisted of in the American colonies, where slaves were purchased and the offspring were also enslaved. Although slavery was utilized differently amongst the aforementioned areas, it was still important to each respective economy. The economy of Utopia was arguably the most compelling aspect of the country, and also differed wildly from those of either New England or Virginia. The Utopian economy was Socialist, meaning no one owned any property, and everything belonged to everyone, and all needs were met. People were responsible for working in the fields, yet everyone was also entitled to an education.
-Because of pesticides scares in the 70s and 80s there is a boom in the growth of organic and local Farming and food consumption. It has been growing exponentially, And even lower's income shoppers are becoming educated on the importance of organic foods. Chapter 8 Community supported agriculture -Community supported agriculture or CSA's are a marketing system that sells each member a subscription or share, of the seasons projected harvests usually well in advance of the first harvest. CSA's tend to be certified organic and are sustainable agriculture developed. -CSA's were sensually an extension of farmers markets – in which you knew who was growing your food and where it was coming from in the care that went into it.
It means that some Europeans, because of their situations, could not go to the New World; so they decided to put themselves at the service of somebody else for a definite period in order to reach the Americas and start a new life. They were as slaves. Another fact is that Europe got a richer nutrition thanks to all the crops raised in America. Moreover there was the decrease of the American population because of the diseases brought by the Europeans such a smallpox. To summarize we can say that here again, Europe was the dominant nation because it gained on economic and social aspects.
The growth of population resulted from more reliable food supplies, thanks to the new crops that originated in the Americas and widespread resistance to disease. Better job opportunities and more dependable food supplies led people to marry at earlier ages and have more children. A high birthrate meant a large percentage of children within the general population.
